Water Beats Energy Drinks for Dental Health
Next time you go for a run, bring water, not a sports drink. According to a study, sports and energy drinks can harm your teeth. Researchers who studied 13 sports drinks and nine energy drinks found that the acidity in the drinks corroded tooth enamel after only five days of intermittent exposure to the liquids. Energy drinks caused twice as much damage to the teeth as sports drinks did. Damaged tooth enamel can lead to tooth sensitivity, cavities, and decay.
